"Touched By An Angel is a show that can stand the test of time. For those that say the show is repetitive, they've missed the whole point and purpose of the show. The show dealt with the human condition, and I think touched based with every experience one could go through; always delivering the message that God loves us through it all. This is the second half of Season 4 with episode descriptions below. The season is thought to have been split because at it's height, the show was extremely popular and had numerous Promise Land crossover episodes, giving the season(s) an abnormal amount of episodes. The show hasn't been fairing as well financially as say Sex & The City or Lost so I encourage everyone to support and buy these season sets if they can. I enjoy and learn something from every episode I watch.
14. Deconstructing Harry
Monica and Tess arrive at the DMV where Tess has been instructed to obtain a driver's license. Her instructor is Doris (Lainie Kazan). Midway through the driving test, Doris tells Tess to follow a hearse, which leads them, both to the funeral of Harry Applegate. Doris enters the funeral and steals the ashes of her former lover with the wife chasing after them.

His children, Andy & Bits are loners, not knowing who to turn to with their problems.

Monica and Tess arrive in the life of a single mother, Mary, to help her reconcile her relationship with her son Aaron. Herself a former athlete, Mary relates to her eldest son Michael, who is the star wrestler of Olympus High School. Aaron, on the contrary, is more cerebral and spends the majority of his time spelling out words to hide the pain he feels for not having a father and not being closer to his mother. When Michael (whom Aaron looks up to) dies, Aaron is distanced from his mother more than ever.
22. Seek and Ye Shall Find
Can Angels get amnesia? Well Monica does when she falls and hits her head outside a bus station in Savage, MI. Dr. Chester Crayton reluctantly treats Monica's injuries inside rather reluctantly. The doctor is on the way to a prison to watch the execution of a man who murdered his wife, whom he cannot forgive.
23. Cry, and You Cry Alone
Four aging comics sit around a diner table reminiscing about their careers and celebrating the fact that one of them is soon to leave on a cruise ship gig.

In the story Monica is a waitress at a Diner who tries to bring Salt and Pepper back together.

Monica and Tess meet their next assignment, Tracy Beringer as she achieves some very bad news via a letter in her mailbox. When she sees an ad in the paper for the Miss Colorado pageant, she tries to sign up to raise money. But she is worried that she could be kicked out and forfeit the winnings if the information contained in the letter is discovered.
Jacob Weiss, a bitter slumlord, is sentenced to spend two weeks in one of his own tenements and the angels arrive to help him understand the error of his ways.
26. Last Dance
The pressure to abstain from sex before getting married is almost as great for teenagers Greg and Jill, as the pressure from their mothers to be perfect students. Jill's mother, Candace, still dealing with issues with her own past, demands complete chastity from her daughter. It is Monica and Tess' assignment to make sure these relationships don't self-destruct.
27. The Spirit of Liberty Moon
Perhaps the landmark episode of the series, The Spirit of Liberty Moon is a 2-hour special. The angels escort Edward Tanner CEO of Tanner Toys to China where Edward will decide if he should start manufacturing toys in Beijing. He brings along a worker, Jean Chang, who claims to be Korean but knows Chinese. After arriving in Beijing it is learned by the angels and Edward that Jean is really Chinese and searching for her husband, who got taken and "reformed" during the Cultural Revolution. Jean is considered an outlaw by the Chinese government and when taken and tortured Monica stays forever by her side. This episode is considered by many to be the most violent and the most heart-wrenching episode of the season.
Touched By An Angel is a show for people of all ages and generations. It speaks of the unchanging truth that God loves and watches over us along with his angels.

"For 9 seasons, we were graced with Touched By An Angel every week (every night if you watched the reruns on PAX or the Hallmark Channel). Now we're getting 'touched' every 9 months?? Ok, I have the entire scripts of seasons one through the first half of season four, memorized. I need some new material!!"
How long must we wait???
